EL-AL Airlines Heathrow Business Lounge

Client: Heathrow Airport
Location: London
Budget: £85,000

Within London’s Heathrow is an El Al Airlines premier traveller perk – for those wishing to hold relaxed business meetings in style.  The fit-out of the new lounge resulted in a real place of interest for passengers to enjoy.

Our work entailed manufacture and installation of a feature ceiling consisting of curved elliptical GRG suspended drop-down fins. Additionally, the design incorporated a coffered ceiling with integral effective lighting design.

Scope of works
Manufacture and installation of feature ceiling consisting of curved elliptical GRG suspended drop down fins.  The design also incorporated innovative elements including a coffered ceiling with an effective lighting design.

Our Solution
We undertook a full site survey and looked at the drawings presented to us by the architect.  We came up with an alternative methodology to fix the ceiling.

We invested a lot of time producing technical drawings and 3D visualisations in order to be able to manufacture exact moulds and casts.  Our ability to utilise our CNC capability means we can deliver to architects exact product design errors are reduced and we can work to higher levels of tolerance.   We provided computer generated images (CGI) to Pascall and Watson prior to build which provided practical build advantages.

The challenges
The difficulties with this project was that we had to work out of hours and during the weekends to get this project completed on time.  We had to work amongst other trades and with a very complicated design.

The end result
The exceptional quality and design of the finished product resulted in an award nomination under the International Design Excellence Awards.

We are very pleased to have received a Certificate of Excellence, for our works at this project, awarded by the Finishes and Interiors Sector - It is always great to receive recognition for the quality of our products.
